Yahoo has inked an agreement with HP to install Yahoo toolbar in HP's new personal computers. HP users will have Yahoo services automatically. If they don't like Yahoo email, Yahoo messenger, and Yahoo search, they can uninstall the toolbar afterward. How many of them will do so?
Cool topic. This is a very well written piece. |
Long post may take more time but is worthwhile.
Keep up good work.
All these guys try their damdest to get toolbars installed in users browsers...why do you think they try so hard? I'll tell you - there is no value in having any of these toolbars thats why. These new folks at congoo have the right idea...they need to improve their product and then everyone will actually want their toolbar...they wont have to strike deals with folks to sneak it into peoples browsers!|
Gea-Suan Lin quoted Bruce Schneier's blog which introduced an article talking about how to get System Privilege:
On many machines this can be exploited even with the guest account.And Gea-Suan Lin's blog name is "I love Microsoft". They all think Microsoft is so bad in security.
at 15:15 /interactive "cmd.exe"Then when the task "cmd.exe" is executed, a new DOS window with System privilege is created, and from this DOS window you can execute commands with System privilege.
This is not completely false. It uses the at--taskschedule, and it happened I had already turned that off because I didn't see any use of that tool anyway.|
the tools are in:
The problem is: without administrator's (or higher) privilege, no one can add a new task into schedule. I failed to do so using User account and Guest account, so I checked the comment of the original article, and found somebody replied as follow:|
This is the dumbest thing I think I've ever read. You need admin priviledges to be able to run At anyway, so how is this an exploit? This is something MS built into windows (since NT 3.51) as a legitimate way for an admin to jump to system-level access.
I agree with him.
Above words should replace the "xxxxxx" in the blog, but I can't put it in. Blogger.com refused to accept that.

--A ML train crashed into a stationary maintenance vehicle in Germany during a test drive. |
Do you think the first sentence should focus on "crash" instead of "test drive?"
--The speed of the driverless train was around 200km/h.
--powerful magnets enable the train to float above and glide along the tracks without friction.
--but no one was injured.
-- be a communication problem or a management problem, not a technology problem.
I think this is a tech problem because the train should be able to detect the object ahead of it and stop itself. It is not a difficult tech. Besides, since the track is monitored, there must be some signals indicating in the system that there was something on the track.
StopBadWare.org is setup by Harvard, Oxford, Google, Lenovo, Sun and other companies. It helps Internet users to avoid disaster when browsing the net:
You or someone you know has downloaded something from the internet that seemed harmless enough at the time. Next thing you know, the computer has slowed to a crawl. Pop-up advertising starts to appear out of nowhere. Private information gets sent to some company you've never heard of. And the worst part? Trying to uninstall the software sometimes makes the problem worse.How do this website implement such a big task? When you use google to search information, if the search result contains a malicious website which has "BadWare", and you want to visit that website, Google will bring you to warning page first, let you know the dangeous of visiting this website. If you think it you are confidence to visit that website, sure you can still do whatever you want, but at least, you've been warned.
Warning: The site you are about to visit may harm your computer!I am quite confidence with my computer, because I know every software I installed, and I have up-to-date antivirus software, I disabled unwanted system service, I update my Windows system on time, and I have firewall running. So I clicked the link to visit those websites. But I don't see anything special. I got the serial number I wanted from both website, and none of them send me any BadWare.
So, it leads me to think: StopBadWare.org is not working to stop malicious software, but to protect copyright, prevent people from getting serial number?!|
10 minutes later, I realized I was using Firefox. Then I opened the two links using IE. One of the pages prompted to send me a "Internet Explorer add-on" from "Inter Technologies Ltd". Yes, that's right. But another page is clean, and I don't know why.
Apparently, Firefox stop the BadWare from showing up. StopBadWare.org should promote the usage of Firefox, so that whenever people go to this kind of webpage, they are immunized.

Sony had to give out uninstall software under presure, but the uninstall software was found with a bigger problem. It didn't uninstall anything. It just revealed the hidden file. The worst is that it installed aditional software that could not be uninstalled.
When my wife tried to install Sql Server
SQL Server 2005 Beta 2 Setup has detected incompatible beta components from Visual Studio or SQL Server. To proceed, use Windows Add or Remove Programs to remove the following: previous SQL Server Yukon components, SQL Server Support Files, .NET Framwork 1.2 and 2.0. Then run SQL Server 2005 Beta 2 Setup again. For detailed instructions on uninstalling SQL Server builds, see the SQL Server 2005 Beta 2 readme file.But from the Add/Remove Programs she couldn't see anything related to previous version of SQL Server.
If your computer has any of the pre-release versions(of SQL Server 2005, Visual Studio 2005, .NET Framework) on it, they must be removed in the correct order BEFORE you begin installing the release version. This process is not officially supported.

China launced a satellite carrying fruit and vegitable. Those seeds are expected to have mutation when they are in space, then after the satellite is returned, the seeds will be planted, and scientists try to cultivate high-yield and high-quality plants from them.
"china claim that"--> China claims or claimed?|
--"the space seeds have high possibility in mutation"-->It is very possible that the space seeds have a mutation. Not very sure?
--"There are some vegetables in Chinese market claiming they are coMMing from Space seed, But according to Chinese market"--> There are some vegetables in Chinese market being claimed that they are from Space Seed.

--"or more nutrition"-->may they taste better, be more nutritious, or be easier to grow
there are a lot of typos. The sentence structure is quite chinglish. No offense. Maybe need more work.|
Checkout this news from Xinhua newsagency:
China launches satellite for breeding seeds of plants, fungus
China launched a satellite from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center Saturday, carrying 215 kilograms of seeds of plants and fungus, the largest-ever such payload since 1987.
The seed-breeding satellite, "Shijian-8", has been successfully brought into the pre-set track in space by a Long March-2C rocket carrier.
Once the space-bred seeds are recovered, the Ministry of Agriculture will organize research institutions to develop new seeds featuring high yield, good quality and high efficiency, according to a spokesman with the Space-breeding Center of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Science.
It is the 90th space flight of the Long March rockets and the 23rd return satellite China has launched so far. It has been the country's 48th successful space launch in succession since October 1996.
The Xi'an Satellite Control Center is responsible for monitoring, controlling, and recovering the Shijian-8.
The Chinese scientists claim that in the Space the seeds have more chance to mutate because there is no gravity, and there is "Space Radiation". No one can tell if the gravity can promote mutation or demote mutation. There is no proof saying that Space Radiation LEADs to better mutation than normal radiation DOES ON earth either. I am afraid that the radiation from the aircraft HAVE the most impact ON mutation :)|
Mutation is random. We have no control in how to mutate. Maybe after the mutation, the fruit has bigger leaf, or small flower ((the plant has bigger leaVES, or smallER flowers)), but it won't affect the quality we care about: maybe taste better, HAVE more nutrition, or ARE easier to grow (three sentences use different verbs, you can not omit them; or...or, the same mistake as yesterday). So 99.9% of mutation is useless. Why would (did) China invest so much of money in such an unproved investment? Why wouldn't anyone ask feedback from those claimed scientists? XJ said: "Ironically, there are some agriculture products in Chinese market claiming they are from space seeds. However, there is no evidence suggesting those claims are true. It's more like a self-serving lie." We really want to know how our tax-payer's money (ARE) spent.
There is one way to prove or unprove (DISPROVE) [“un” is a prefix for adj. and “dis” is a prefix for verb. E.g. disconnect, disagree, unknown, unfrozen. Rememer Allen clarified us this point when he was in our home and I used “unfreeze”? BUT unfreeze is a special case. It works! ]the Space seed theory: Why isn't there any other country doing the same thing? (I do not think this point can support your conclusion. It does not say it is wrong if nobody else is doing whatever you are doing. Right?) Apparently they don't beliEve this theory. Did they do any experiment? If they did, what were the results? If they don't, why? There must be some arguments about this already.

The eWeek No. x issue had an article about Java: Java's Momentum Is Running Low.|
Java was invented in the early 1990s, and by the mid-1990s, it became a hype because it can "programe once, run everywhere." Java is claimed to be able to communicate among different operating systems. Because Java is a pure OO language and doesn't have backward compatibility problem as C++, it is more readable and more maintainable.
However, Jave has not been popular yet. Although running Java applet is fun, it is not a mainstream product in the Internet. It is slow and is not as beautiful as Flash.
In the late 1990s, people realized that Java is best to be used in the server instead of the client side. Its ubiquity makes it easy to trasfer data among different server plaforms. So it becomes a big tool in companies.
In 2000, C# was invented. It combines the advantages of Java and C++.
My car came with McGard Wheel Lock system. That is 1 key and 4 screws which can replace the screws in the vehicle wheels. The screws have special screw-nuts which can only be operated by corresponding key. So, after the screws are installed into 4 wheels, the key must be used to take out the wheel.
--"take out the wheel"-->"Take the whell off"?|
-- "Special-made"-->I would say, "specially made"
--"my serial number"-->the car's serial number
--"protect the wheels from stolen"--protect the wheels from being stolen
--"we must keep the key"--> we have to keep the key..
--"pass-by" is a verb. -->passer-by
--"you park your car at the roadside"-->you pull over to the roadside
--"you do not bring the key with you". Bring is a verb, addressing the action. --> You do not have the key with you at that moment. addressing the status.

The famous Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, was attacked by a stingray fish, and he was pierced right in the heart by the tail of stingray, and died shortly.
Thank goodness, you are practicing your English secretly. :-)|
If you use "and", you can omit the subject such as he.
For example, he is enthusiastic in protecting wildlfe and always walks bravely to an unknow place to look for wild snakes/crocodiles/siders or any kind of animals. He often holds a python when talking to the caera about the snake's lifestyle and living environment.
I have some concerns about the tense in this paragraph too.
